We arrived at Lime Rock at about 10am and stayed until after the last race. Several AMOC members and their cars were there- and a few even raced. What a great day!

Enjoy the photos.


The first Aston I saw today was Jim Freeman's DB4GT during the practice session in the morning.

 


Then we saw a Club member's 1965 Short Chassis Volante. In addition to today's photos (seen here), I also had a chance to photograph the same car at Lime Rock in 2005.

 

 


DB3S photographed in the paddock.

 

 



The Steel Wings trailer in the paddock was a popular spot for Astons.


Jim Freeman's DB4GT Lightweight


Jim Hazen's DB2/4

 

I spotted this DB4 in the parking lot.



In the afternoon, the actual racing began. The DB3S and DB2/4 were in the 1946-1955 Sports Racing & Production Cars under 2000cc Class.

 

 

Race 6, 1956-62 GT/Prod. Over 2200cc & 1962-64 under 2000cc, featured Jim Freeman driving his DB4GT.

Heading to the false grid area.


He started at the back of the pack...


But quickly made his way to the front...


And left the competition in the dust...


Congratulations, Jim!


How could I resist walking over to say hello?


Oh, how I love this Club...


I even managed to shoot a few photos from inside.


I also spotted this DB6, which I was told has been fully restored.

 


And the last Aston of the day was Andrew Petch's beautiful 1991 Virage spotted on our way out of Lime Rock Park. You may recognize the car- I posted pictures of it in May from The Brits are Back car show in Pennsylvania, USA.




By the way, I set a new personal record today for most photos taken in a single day- 1526. ;D
